Call for Papers
Full paper submission deadline (extended): Mon 13th February 2023
Short paper and Poster submission deadline (extended): Mon 22th May 2023
We particularly welcome submissions from researchers who are currently based in lower- or middle-income countries, and can offer reduced registration fees. See this page for details.
Papers advancing the field methodologically or theoretically are encouraged; those strictly dealing with applications are discouraged. This year we are also particularly interested in efforts that are directly engaging with stakeholders and citizens to inform better policy formation and intervention, especially at different scales of decision making (further details on the conference themes page). We are also interested in advances in work that is focused on developing new methodologies for improving the toolset that computational modellers and analysts have at their disposal.
Full Paper Track
Full papers will be thoroughly reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee. High-quality submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference and published in LIPIcs, the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics series. Manuscripts must describe original work that has neither been published before, nor is currently under review elsewhere. Papers must be written in English and should not exceed fifteen pages (including title, figures, and references) in the required layout (see below).
Short Paper Track
Short papers that report on work in progress will be reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee. Accepted papers in this track will be selected for oral presentation and published in LIPIcs, the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics series. Short papers must be written in English and should not exceed six pages (including title, figures, and references) in the requested LIPIcs layout. In addition, each submission must have a subtitle 'Short Paper' to distinguish Full papers from Short papers.
We welcome posters at GIScience 2023. All posters will be reviewed by the General Chairs and Programme Chairs. Posters can be submitted by uploading a 300 word abstract to Easychair (there is no need to upload the full poster for the process of review).
- Poster submission deadline: Mon 22nd May 2023
Formatting instructions (paper tracks)
All submissions to GIScience, whether full paper or short paper, should follow the LIPIcs instructions for authors and use the LIPIcs LaTeX template. The GIScience review process is double-blind, so please do not include any identifying information in the paper PDF.
Authors who are unfamiliar with LaTeX, but keen to try, are highly encouraged to use Overleaf, an online LaTeX editor that is easy to use and does not require any local installation. Overleaf comes with the LIPIcs class and template pre-loaded. Authors who want to use other text editors should stay close to the sample article’s layout for their paper submitted for review. Should their papers be accepted for publication, they have to be converted to LaTeX using the LIPIcs LaTeX class and template. Authors are responsible for the conversion of their papers to LaTeX.
Submission instructions and publication details (paper tracks)
Submission for review: First submissions (for review) should be provided in PDF format through the conference website on Easychair.
Final submission: The accepted and revised papers will be submitted through the LIPIcs submission system as a zipped, complete LaTeX project.
Publication: In order for an accepted paper to be included in the conference program and published in the proceedings at least one of the paper authors has to register by the author registration deadline (see Key Dates).
